Keith - The DogFather, Box Loader, Team Manager

IMG_1941

Keith became involved in flyball when Shrimpy refused to run unless his Dad was box loading, and since then Keith has box loaded for a number of teams. Keith and Julie have a total of 16 dogs, many adopted from Jerry Green, a charity supported by DogStar. Keith has recently started to run Bedevere and now has one arm more or less at a right angle to his body. When not at flyball Keith runs Asselby Chucks, a small business specialising in rare breed poultry and models Mankini's for the Howden Fashionista in the evenings. Rumours Keith is to be the new Stigg have been strenuously denied due to an injunction preventing him wearing leather in public.

Sally - Joint Camping Planner

IMAG0123

Sally is the DogStar pseudo hippy-chick. Runs Meg, the Patterdale terrierist, 7" height dog with a 7" wide mouth so everyone can hear her. Pepper, the Norfolk terrierist who will one day, we hope, stop spinning for 1/2 hour before she reaches the first jump and so make it out of starters and Mully, the Cairn terrierist. Sally joined DogStar in Autumn 2012 and has since gone into semi-retirement from work just so she can spend more time enjoying it all.

Another one of our Spaniel ladies, but this time Springers. Liz is in training to be a judge for Flyball which let's face it is a thankless task at the best of times. Frequently runs Arthus as well as her own dogs, Fudge, Penny, Neam and Super Sub Fern.

Ginnette- Handler

Ginnette joined DogStar in September from Lomond in Scotland. She has fittin in well and her dog Prada is currently running with DogStar Devils and Diddy Dogs. Awaiting the rest of the BIO :-)

Andrew - Honorary Member

IMAG0125

Andrew runs for Commandos and is a head judge. And a jolly good job he does too. Crawling over, Andrew steps in and runs Arthur when Liz isn't available. Disturbingly seems to get the best out of Arthur by winding his tail at the start line, still whatever works for you I guess. The fun rivalry between Commandos and DogStar highlights everything that is good in Flyball that even two teams running against each other can have a laugh and a joke even while both in the ring.
